I feel like I’ve lost a bit of focus over the last fortnight or so, when it comes to my sewing. Not helped by the fact that Toddler Boy infected us all with another vicious flu-like bug from nursery.

Having to think about what to do with each item and how I ended up in this predicament meant that by the end of the process, I was definitely getting clear messages from my wardrobe about the cause of its total overflow situation. I’ll share them here in case you’re looking to cut down to a classic capsule wardrobe or at least get to the point where you feel like you do always have something to wear!
10 things my wardrobe told me:
I am working my way through the first project in a “teach yourself dressmaking” book (Love at First Stitch available from Tilly and the Buttons) and thought I’d share what I’ve learned so far!
